Editorial Reviews


“Lou Paget has become a one-woman sexual revival.”

“With wit and warmth, Lou Paget dispenses the wisdom gained from listening to and working with thousands of happy and satisfied couples, bringing forth a book that is required reading for people who like sex, love their partners and want to keep the sparks flying.”
—Violet Blue, Senior Book Reviewer, Good Vibrations

“[Lou Paget] not only gives pregnant women permission to be sexual, but offers the promise that those nine months can be ‘one of the most sensual, luscious times of a woman’s life.’”
Calgary Herald

Paget is “fun, straightforward and very informative.”
The Toronto Sun

From the Inside Flap

From North America's most sophisticated sex educator, whose books top two million copies in print, comes a one-of-a-kind guide to embracing your sensuality during and after the emotional and physical changes of pregnancy

Everywhere you look today you'll find pregnant women embracing their newfound curves and the idea that pregnancy can be one of the sauciest, sexiest times of their lives. Lou Paget, who has made a name for herself by combining the latest research findings with the most popular topics in her field of sexuality, is at it again with her taboo busting and groundbreaking research to help women maintain their sensuality and sexuality while dealing with changes in body, relationship, and lifestyle during and after pregnancy. All the questions women — and men — have regarding pregnancy and sex will finally be answered by one of the country's foremost experts on sexuality and relationships, putting all of the contradictory information to rest. A guide like no other, Hot Mamas addresses such topics as:

• Detailed explanations of how the biological changes during pregnancy can impact your sexuality
• Why pregnancy can significantly enhance a woman's orgasms and sex drive
• The best positions for each month of each trimester, including the six-month period after birth, also known as the "4th trimester"
• What to do if intercourse seems out of the question
• Important questions to ask your physician or midwife
• Ways to ensure your pregnancy ushers in a new and expansive side to your relationship and your sex life

Pregnancy shouldn't mean a hiatus from intimacy. With compassionate, straightforward advice and illuminating how-to illustrations, Hot Mamas at last tells pregnant women and their partners everything they need to know about making this one of the sexiest times of their lives and is sure to make readers view pregnancy in an exciting new light. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Format: Paperback
I highly recommend this book to any couple that is worried about how to get through pregnancy without losing a healthy sexual aspect to their relationship. Paget's book does a great job explaining how you can remain sexual during pregnancy and it gives good advice on how to reignite a sexual relationship after the baby's birth once you are new parents. Paget has a very conversational and easy-to-read writing style that gets across important sexual health information. This is a great book for clearing up any myths or misinformation you might have about sex and pregnancy. It does a great job detailing advice and tips on safe sexual techniques during each trimester of pregnancy. The diagrams are effective too.

For this newly pregnant health educator, this was a nice, solid read on this topic. Paget does a good job establishing herself as a resource (including that she conducted an online survey of 100 or so couples) and she incorporates expert and interviewee (preggies and their male partners) comments really well throughout. Her info is solid and intelligent, but... I wasn't blown away by it. I found her tone a bit on the stuffy side, and even a bit of a downer in parts, e.g., she actually goes after "frumpy" preggies. Paget does ack. the downers that can come along w/ pregnancy and she doesn't always try to give advice that helps lovers to deal beyond decent fashion advice. In hoping for something that would live up to its title, my husband and I were a bit disappointed overall.

Format: Paperback
This book, while well-informed and easy to read, is a bit stuffy for my taste. If you can't handle "Your Orgasmic Pregnancy: Little Sex Secrets Every Hot Mama Should" know because you're offended by frank talk and womanly wit, this is the book for you!

However, I daresay, that the voice in this book is hardly 'hot mama'-ish. It reminds me more of my grandmother's era, no offense, Lou. Good intentions don't always have the best result.

The title is misleading at best.
